I try to stay completely unattached in the illness community, as a general rule. What I mean is I am not a member of anything aside from this site. I don't wish to be aligned with any one view point, or purpose, I like my autonomy and my freedom. My island state is not born out of aloofness, nor a 'I'm better than', no its simply my way. I am better off dealing with things alone. On my own. Now to be strictly fair I have a small but great circle of PWP whom I discuss things with, share and comment. I need to check but I don't 'lean' so far I haven't needed too. I am here for everyone else and thats how I like it. My island is a great place, I pack my days with countless activities, I am diverse, a little too busy and always pushing. I have always been a positive 100 mile an hour person, PD makes me more focussed more driven more determined. I don't have a bucket list I have a life list and its never ending. I seek motivation, I actively find things to engage me. I rely on no one else for ideas nor to guide me. I believe everything I need to have a good life I have inside me, its up to me to switch myself on, and to stay bright. I guess I make a near perfect ill person. Currently, as I slow, as I loose dexterity, as I fumble, dither, and drown in the chaos of my inability to keep tidy, I am sharpening up my tolerance and patience reserves. I need them! As I look out from my island this morning I can see another island just in reach, and another, and another..... I'm in a chain. Alone and yet surrounded, and thats fine. I can always shout if I need something. I've just realised that there is no real purpose in this post, nor any kind of message. Its rather self reflective. And sometimes thats perfectly alright. Good morning from Scotland, have a kick ass week, and stay warm and dry, Oh and bake! its good for the soul x
